Whew. The internet is here! Yay! I can pop in for 12.2 seconds to tell you why I didn’t post all weekend and then I have to jet and give my daughter a morning bath because her feet are really dirty. (I’ll get to that.)
Big Spring Jam was this weekend which means we spent a large majority of our time wandering around downtown listening to music. Either that or looking for lost cell phones. But that story deserves it’s own entry.
NikkiZ did a lot of dancing by herself (in the dirt = dirty feet) and with her Mom and brother. I didn’t have my good camera with me (not the right environment to keep it safe) and didn’t feel like dragging the small one out of my purse, (Kim from 2020 curses Kim from 2007, DO YOU NOT REALIZE HOW FAMOUS TAYLOR WOULD BECOME! You should have documented it!) so you will just have to trust me that seeing my 12-year-old son dancing with his 2-year-old sister at a Taylor Swift concert will be one of those memories that I’ll carry with me forever. He had two of his good friends on either side and they were all dancing and singing and, for the first time since I was 12, I actually wished I could be in 7th grade again. Everyone had a blast.
When we weren’t trying to navigate a tiny umbrella stroller up and down curves and hills (I’m starting to see now why many people think those giant expensive strollers are worth it) we were walking the Scarecrow Trail at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens. NikkiZ loved that, but not as much as the pumpkin stamp they gave her for the hayride. She was very sad to see that come up with the next bath.
When we weren’t doing those things, or hanging out with family, we were home sleeping. The few moments I had awake, at home, were those few moments it seemed the router wanted to be stingy with allowing me access to cyberspace. Probably a good thing – I might have needed a break from the computer this weekend.
In other words? Best. Weekend. Ever. I’ve got a lot of individual stories to share about it (Like the woman who tried to force a “lip makeover” on me. What the hell is a “lip makeover?”) and I’ll get to those throughout the week. But now? It’s time to wash some stinky feet.
